check to see if your drain hose is too far down in the stand pipe this will siphon water out as it fills.

SOURCE: Frigidaire front load washer won't drain or spin

This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

Washer doesnt fill , instead it drains as its supposed to be filling

check that your stand pipe is 36 in high of the ground and that you have a air gap from your outlet hose and keep the hose at that hight

My GE washer drains as it is filling but the spin cycle works fine why?The washer model # is wcsr2080b4ww thanks

The standpipe that the drain hose drains into is too low. Make sure your drain hose is at least 36 " high.

Washer drains then spins then fills again and drains but no spin

Try this, unplug washer for two minutes, plug back in, open and close lid seven times slowly, this will reset the computer and the electronic motor. Also on water level switch, make sure hose from switch to tub is not plugged, blow it out, gets clogged with soap.

Water fills to normal level, then drains (not on the floor).

You need to raise your drain hose a minimum of 30". Check this out and hope it helped. Best wishes.

Water just drains, wont fill up washer

the top of the hose must be higher than the water level in the washer for proper operation

Washer fills and drains at the same time. doesn't change cycles

check the washer drain hose, it is probably sipening the water back out, try pulling it out of the drain a few inches

Whirlpool washer fills, begins to agitate, then drains

Water siphoning out the drain line
If the water is continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36" above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line.
moz-screenshot.jpgThe washer fills and drains at the same time only on the rinse cycle.
Shut the machine off with timer during this period and raise the drain hose. If the water continues to drain, you will need to install an anti-siphon kit.

Washer fills and drains repeatedly

Have a look at the routing of your drain hose. It sounds a bit as if: a. The highest point of the hose isn't high enough (you normally want to aim for about 3 feet off the ground) - so that water starts draining from the machine before it is finished filling. and b. There isn't an effective air break or anti-siphon valve where the drain hose goes into the domestic drainage system - so that once the machine starts to drain by itself, it continues until empty. A.

Washer fills then drains

Daisy, check your drain hose going into the drain. It sounds like you have a siphoning problem. If the drain hose does not have a air gap the water filling will siphon right out. Check this first and post back, Catriver.
